Rule Violations

Current Sanctions

This section lists all persons currently serving an Anti-Doping Rule Violation (ADRV).

Please note - under the World Anti-Doping Code all ADRVs must be published for one year. Therefore, this list also includes those cases in which a person received a sanction of less than one year (and therefore the sanction has expired).
